Avila Apple Festival
The Avila Apple Fest, October 4th and 5th
As October slowly approaches, the fall leaves and crisp autumn air can mean only one thing: apples. Everything Apple, to be more specific—as the Avila Apple Festival, held on October 4th and 5th, offers up two days of Apple-filled delight.
The first night of the festival commences with the Farm-to-Table Dinner, an apple-inspired feast held at the Avila Valley Barn, catered by the barn’s chef Jesse Smith. With an affinity for the work of the local community, the Farm-to-Table Dinner offers a connection to local growers and a bond with the Avila Valley Barn that is unmatched.
This fall feast is also accompanied by a film on Avila’s Apple Growing history, a silent auction, and apple-culture demonstrations—all apple-inspired additions to the perfect evening.
The fun continues with the “Its Everything Apple” Vendor Fair, the second day of the festival that offers up a fun-filled Sunday afternoon for the whole family.
Take a stroll through downtown Avila and find yourself surrounded by a plethora of vendors, food booths, contests, games, crafts, and even apple art. Your afternoon will be filled with the smells of fall and the sounds of local entertainment as the Apple Fest wraps up the weekend with a fun-filled day.
Tickets for the “Meet the Growers” Farm-to-table dinner can be bought on the events website, http://www.avilaapplefestival.com/.
The Vendor Fair will take place from 12-4 on Sunday, October 5th. The fair will be held all throughout downtown Avila Beach.
